Matthew Herberts is running it? Didn't I have to tell him off earlier for slaughtering a pig or something? WHITHER MORRISSEY???

But it won't be THE Radiophonic Workshop will it?

And it looks like it's just going be some kind of forum (or something), NOT some place where mad, creative boffins make innovative electronica.

And Delia won't be there ... sadly.

In 1958 the BBC radiophonic workshop was established. it's aim was to create new sounds, music and sound effects for BBC programmes. it quickly became the most important electronic music studio in the UK, creating innovative, ground breaking work in often very mainstream and visible ways. it's most famous creation is probably the doctor who theme music




An illiterate holding page signed by the pig butcher. I'm not impressed so far.

Probably. That SOS article irritated me though, being a bit of a swinophile. And he does need to learn how to use caps.

For the record, he didn't actually kill the pig - he just recorded it.

Cheers!

It was the fact that he recorded it "for the record" that was the problem!!

I’ll give you an example. This track is called ‘January’, and this is the point at which the pig is going off to the abbatoir. It’s the only time on the whole record that we hear the pig on its own. It’s like a solo, or what have you. So I’m thinking about what I’m trying to say about this. The first thing I did was to put a low-pass filter on it, so it’s muffled, and...

...I feel like I have some kind of abstract responsibility to the pig to not manipulate it to the point at which it becomes unrecognisable...

...People are drinking, chatting and producing hideous squealing noises from a device that appears to consist of test tubes filled with pig’s blood.




A deeply disturbed individual.

He's promoting his pig-murder opus in the latest "M" (PRS) magazine too.

It raises all sorts of complicated philosophical and moral questions, and you consider whether it's appropriate to use these noises, and how we should react as performers and audience




Or more importantly, how would *Morrissey* react?

I think Morrissey and Matthew Herbert should collaborate.... an interesting dynamic!

Clearly, Matthew Herberts should remix "Meat is Murder". Using real meat. Murdered.

But yeah - he really is a sub-species. /sighs/

Thanks. I've been a big fan of John Baker and Delia Derbyshire for years now. I've got the reel mount from a Ferrograph 3 with 'D. Oram' written underneith (the part that slots into the machine). It's a shame it's not Delia's, it might've been worth a few bob!

I was quite shocked recently to hear such a simularity between Delia Derbyshire's composition style and a group called Les Structures Sonores. To say she was influenced by them is an understatment! It's pretty amazing how close she got to their sound, even though they were using glass and metal instruments (e.g. Crystal Organ). But the general style, it has to be said, was really theirs.

I think why the BBC Radiophonic Worshop still sound fresh is because they weren't synthesized sounds (at first), but real sounds that were put through oscillators, repitched, reversed and filtered. That still sounds great today!

I've got stuff by Les Structures Sonares at home that sounds more like Delia in compositional style, but you can hear the influence of their acoustic instruments on Delia's electronic timbres in this video I found:



B1) Invention A 2 Voix En Ré Mineur (JS Bach) arr. Jacques Lasry 1:29
B2) Menuet - (JS Bach) arr. Jacques Lasry 1:43
B3) Toccata Toccarde (Jacques Lasry) 1:50

Clarinet -- Teddy Lasry
Directed By, Performer -- Jacques Lasry
Performer -- Bernard Baschet, Yvonne Lasry
Performer, Technician, Instruments -- François Baschet
